Harry F Rochat Ltd are able to carry out restorations of all makes of Etching, Direct Litho, Offset Litho, Albion, Columbian and cylinder relief presses and take great care in doing so.

Replacement and fitting of new castings into existing original surrounds and frames, to restore the machine to its former glory is possible where required and undertaken expertly by ourselves.

Attention to details such as traditionally burnt on and riveted handles are still employed on Albion and Columbian presses as original. Broken and damaged Tympans can be re-made, fitted and recovered as necessary.

The following are pictures of presses recently fully refurbished and repaired after extensive fire damage and a number of breakages.

Commissions direct from artists, workshops, co-operatives, schools, colleges and universities are welcome. Please feel free to contact us on the number below or via e-mail if you prefer for advice.
